Scientists conducted a study that confirmed the effect of vaping on the risk of developing breast cancer. Experts from major universities such as Yale and Princeton have found that vapors from e-cigarettes create a tumor-friendly environment. Writes about this Daily Mail.
During the study, scientists set up an experiment on mice. One group of rodents was kept in the fresh air, and the other in a room with vaping vapors. Then both groups were given injections with breast cancer cells. Within a few weeks, the tumors in the second group of mice grew twice as fast. In addition, they were found to have a high risk of developing metastases.
Earlier it was reported that the harm from e-cigarettes to the cardiovascular system is comparable to the harm from traditional smoking. Scientists emphasized that in terms of caring for the heart, vapes should not be considered as a safe alternative to smoking.
